Macys 5

Watching the parade on Thanksgiving morning is a holiday tradition for many, as more than 50 million people catch it on television each year. Another three million people line the streets of downtown New York City, but you can watch it from an indoor VIP venue along the 2-mile parade route, which begins on Central Park West at 77th Street and travels south on 6th Avenue, crossing 42nd Street and ending at Macy's Herald Square on 34th Street.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is internationally recognized as the official start of the holiday season, and world famous as a uniquely American entertainment extravaganza. Each year, Macy's presents a line-up featuring spectacular floats, giant helium balloons, the very best in high school and college marching bands, specialty youth performance groups, and top-name stars from the television, film and recording industries. Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is broadcast nationally on NBC.
